it depends on what 30% you are not doing, if you are selling out to president obama's ideas on obamacare or big government or extends regulation or shutting down coal and corrupting people, then no, that is 30%, these cannot stand, you have to look at it from perspective. most people look at what is personal to them, what impacts me as a head of a working family or otherwise. republicans are not in many areas standing up to fight that battle. boehner should take the tea party freshman do what rand paul does, and ted cruise is doing they are resonating. neil: but they are not resonating with th the speaker,o that point do you think john boehner should be speaker? >> i think -- it is not enough to manage inside washington d.c., have you got to go out and speak to the people, the fact is that house, has often not been able to properly address or talk about why what they are doing matters to average people, and not to getting any done. they could have put this president on offense 500 times, and by refusing to allow group of people, original tea party freshmen to rise up and have a voice, yo
